04/06/2017 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: So handsome with runway-model elegant legs and slender torso, Conklin is ready for a walk and a chance to potty. He pulls on the leash in his happiness to be out, wants to meet every dog we pass, and feels it’s his personal mission to chase the birds in our path. Conklin wags his tail when I talk to him, his eyes sparkle, and as he explored our backyard pen I could really admire his shining coat and good looks. Conklin sits when asked, takes treats gently and posed for photos like a model, rocking a bow tie and looking incredibly dapper! Conklin has a fabulous sparkling smile (showing off great white teeth), and when he turns that smile on the whole world smiles with him! Conklin is ready to find a new person with whom to share long walks and a happily ever after. Come meet him today.
03/30/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: None 3/27/17 Unaltered Male, Stray SAFER ASSESSMENT: 3/28/17 Look: 2. Dog pulls out of Assessor’s hands each time without settling during three repetitions. Sensitivity: 1. Dog stands still, eyes soft, soft and loose body, open mouth. Tag: 1. Follows at end of leash, body soft, distracted. Squeeze 1: 1. Dog gently pulls back his paw. Squeeze 2: 1. Dog gently pulls back his paw. Toy: 1. No interest. Summary: Conklin was distracted during his assessment, focusing on sniffing around the room. He allowed all handling and displayed no concerning behaviors. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: _X_Selective: These dogs can succeed with certain other dogs, but may be more selective or picky. They may dislike certain ‘types’ of dogs or styles of dog play so they may require extra supervision when interacting with other dogs. PLAYGROUP: Conklin has engaged playfully with female dogs in the care center. He has often been observed to mount other dogs during interaction. Conklin may be selective when engaging with dogs and has stiffened and growled when attempting to introduce him to other male dogs. These introductions were not conducted further. The behavior department recommends slow introductions between Conklin and social or tolerant female resident dogs. We recommend future introductions be conducted on a one on one basis. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 3/27/17 During his initial medical exam, Conklin was tense.
ENERGY LEVEL: We have no history on Conklin so we cannot be certain of his behavior in a home environment. However, he is a young, enthusiastic, social dog who will need daily mental and physical activity to keep him engaged and exercised. We recommend long-lasting chews, food puzzles, and hide-and-seek games, in additional to physical exercise, to positively direct his energy and enthusiasm. RECOMMENDATIONS: Experience (Suitable for an adopter with a previous amount of dog experience) Potential challenges: _X_Basic manners/Poor impulse control: It is recommended that default behaviors such as “Leave it”, “Sit/Stay”, “Down” are reinforced to substitute frustration and teach him to control his impulses instead of simply reacting; proper management is also advised. Force-free, reward based training is recommended _X_Anxiety: Conklin has shown some signs of potential anxiety in the care center, vocalizing (whining, barking) continually through the SAFER and through play sessions outside. This behavior was not reported at intake, and we have no known history on Conklin, so we cannot be certain whether similar behavior will be seen in a future home environment. _X_No dog parks: Based on observation made on Conklin in the care center, it is recommended that Conklin meet other dogs on a one on one basis (see PLAYGROUP for more information). _X_On-leash reactivity/barrier frustration: Conklin has been observed to react to other dogs on leash, and in-kennel while in the care center (lunging toward them, growling, hard barking). Conklin may benefit from positive reinforcement, reward based training to teach him to refocus attention to his handler when passing by other other dogs. We recommend a front clip harness or head halter to help manage this behavior.
